the cold front gets closer to us. and then we have to talk about the tropics. we have tropical storm nadine right now looking good and healthy. this will be a category 1 storm. this storm is going to stay well away from us as it makes the northwesterly jog and things will be much more drier and better home as we go through time. this is what we're liking. if you have to have the tropical storm and hurricanes, keep them away from the u.s. future trend not picking up on a lot. this is the front that gets closer to us at 5:00. look at what happens. this is not going to happen. we have a few clouds out there. and that stray shower is possible. but i think we should stay dry as we go through time. after the cold front makes it through, plenty of sunshine saturday and sunday and keep the outdoor plans. next week we have a change. 83 today and partly sunny with an isolated shower this
